Title: 3D SMART MODELS FOR HERITAGE CONSERVATION An Open Science project for documentation, management and representation of Cultural Heritage

URL: http://3d-smohc.fa.ulisboa.pt/

Description: In today’s society, three-dimensional models of the tangible heritage present the greatest potential for heritage conservation efforts, due to advances in display devices, capabilities, and infrastructure costs, etc. However, in reality, these models do not always provide the necessary accuracy; they require an arduous process of managing and transforming; and they are not set up for reuse and long-term archiving. Without such capabilities we are left with inadequate knowledge that leads to higher expenses and time costs during documentation of fieldwork, disconnected bodies of geospatial data, and over-dimensioned and disorganised information. These problems further limit the scope and efficiency of the use of digital heritage resources for professionals, and restrict the accessibility of these resources to a wider audience without technical literacy, therefore constraining conservation and reuse practices throughout society.

Title: Chip-based MUSICAL nanoscopy for imaging endocytosis pathways of phage viruses in liver sinusoidal endothelial cells

URL: http://3dnanoscopy.uit.no/

Description: Research in biology is both empowered and limited by the fluorescence imaging technology, which has witnessed a huge leap in resolution limits through super-resolved optical microscopy or also referred as optical nanoscopy. Over the last few decades, numerous optical nanoscopy techniques have been reported for either spatial or temporal resolution enhancement. Nevertheless, the present state-of-the-art of optical nanoscopy lacks to provide high optical resolution (50 nm or better) at high temporal resolution (~1 Hz) over large field of view (> 500 X 500 μm2) in live-cell friendly imaging conditions, such as without special buffer/fluorophores and with minimum photo-toxicity. In this proposal, the aim is to provide ~50 nm optical resolution at significantly small temporal scales (~ seconds) in photochemical environment which is physiologically conducive for in-vivo bio-imaging applications. This is achieved by incorporating complementary knowledge and intra-disciplinary skills on the computational nanoscopy (of the experienced researcher, ER) and chip-based optical nanoscopy technique (developed by the hosting PI). The aim is to apply Multiple Signal Classification algorithm (MUSICAL), a computational nanoscopy algorithm developed by the experienced researcher with the fluctuating illumination provided by waveguide chip-based optical nanoscopy developed at the host university, namely Universite it Tromsø, under the ERC funded project (Nanoscopy, PI: Ahuliwalia). The technique shall be used to image and understand endocytosis transport-highway of phages virus in liver endothelial scavenger cells.

Title: 5G-CORAL: A 5G Convergent Virtualised Radio Access Network Living at the Edge

URL: http://5g-coral.eu/

Description: The 5G-CORAL project leverages on the pervasiveness of edge and fog computing in the Radio Access Network (RAN) to create a unique opportunity for access convergence. This is envisioned by the means of an integrated and virtualised networking and computing solution where virtualised functions, context-aware services, and user and third-party applications are blended together to offer enhanced connectivity and better quality of experience. The proposed solution contemplates two major building blocks, namely (i) the Edge and Fog computing System (EFS) subsuming all the edge and fog computing substrate offered as a shared hosting environment for virtualised functions, services, and applications; and (ii) the Orchestration and Control System (OCS) responsible for managing and controlling the EFS, including its interworking with other (non-EFS) domains (e.g., transport and core networks, distant clouds, etc.). Through the 5G-CORAL solution, several Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can be achieved, notably an ultra-low end-to-end latency in the order of milliseconds. Moreover, new business prospects arise with new stakeholders in the value chain, notably small players owning computing and networking assets in the local service area, such as in shopping malls, airports, trains and cars. These environments will be used to validate the system in three complementary end-to-end large-scale testbeds in Taiwan, supporting innovative applications such as augmented reality, car safety, and IoT gateway.

Title: Remote area Access Network for 5th GEneration

URL: http://5g-range.eu/

Description: 5G is considered the next revolution in communication. Several researches focus efforts in tackling challenges for enhancing data rate, reducing latency, improving connectivity and reducing consumption. However there is one relevant mode that has not been strongly supported by the research efforts, which is Internet access for remote areas. As of today, we estimate 1.4 billion of unconnected people live in areas where mobile broadband coverage is not available, showing the immense impact of a network that can deliver high quality Internet access in remote areas. It is clear that a sustainable rural service will not be available unless network deployments and business strategies are specifically tailored to this scenario. Integrating state-of-the-art in mobile communication with business concepts of sharing economy would allow any local entrepreneur to become a profitable mobile rural infrastructure operator with extremely capillary commercialization and operating capabilities. The goal of 5G-RANGE is surpass the limitations of current technologies, making the coverage of low populate areas a feasible business. We aim for a cell radius above 50 km with at least 100 Mbps at the edge, employing both licensed and unlicensed frequencies, while cognitive radio techniques will be used to protect incumbents. Clearly, this new 5G mode needs to be flexible to comply with different applications and services. The current standards cannot use spectral wholes and have limited spectrum mobility. A new waveform needs to be considered and the mechanisms in the MAC and Network layers must take advantage of the features of this waveform in order to provide the desirable dynamic and fragmented spectrum allocation. The combination of an innovative PHY and a cognitive MAC will result in a 5G mode able to reach the unconnected people, not only in Brazil, but worldwide. This network will also trigger new agribusiness services, bringing new revenues for different sectors of our society.

Title: 5G-TRANSFORMER: 5G Mobile Transport Platform for Verticals

URL: http://5g-transformer.eu/

Description: The vision of the 5G-TRANSFORMER project is that Mobile Transport Networks shall transform from today’s rigid interconnection solutions into an SDN/NFV-based 5G Mobile Transport and Computing Platform (MTP) able of simultaneously supporting an extremely diverse range of networking and computing requirements to meet in particular the specific needs of vertical industries. A new networking paradigm known as Network Slicing has emerged for 5G as the most promising approach to address this challenge by enabling per slice management of virtualized resources. 5G-TRANSFORMER aims to bring the “Network Slicing” paradigm into mobile transport networks by provisioning and managing MTP slices tailored to the needs of vertical industries. Specifically: automotive, healthcare and media. The technical approach is twofold: (1) Enable Vertical Industries to meet their service requirements within customised MTP slices; and (2) Aggregate and Federate transport networking and computing fabric, from the edge up to the core and cloud, to create and manage MTP slices throughout a federated virtualized infrastructure. The proposed solution defines three novel building blocks that will be developed and demonstrated integrating the aforementioned three vertical industries:

Description: Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the leading cause of dementia in the Western world and to date no cure nor any preventive strategy are available for this neurodegenerative disorder. Bacterial 16S rRNA sequencing from fecal samples revealed a remarkable shift in the gut microbiota of conventionally-raised AD mice compared to healthy, wild-type mice. Based on these findings, we generated germ-free Alzheimer (GF-AD) mouse model and discovered a drastic reduction of cerebral Aβ amyloid pathology when compared to control AD mice with natural intestinal microbiota. In contrast, fecal transplantation of GF-AD with harvested microbiota from conventionally-raised AD mice dramatically increased cerebral Aβ pathology.

Title: Clinical trial of autologous adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (ASC) in the treatment of mild to moderate osteoarthritis

URL: http://adipoa2.eu/

Description: Osteoarthritis (OA) is an incurable disease that has evaded pharmacological interference, biologic therapy or surgical intervention to prevent disease progression. Currently, OA is designated the 11th highest contributor (of 291 diseases) of global disability. In the absence of effective treatment options, cellular therapies using mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) have emerged as potential candidates to overcome this clinical short-coming. Autologous adipose-derived mesenchymal stromal cells (ASCs) are attractive for cellular therapy given the abundance of tissue, high frequency of MSCs and minimally invasive harvest procedure. The EU consortium ADIPOA has shown in a ‘first in man’ 2-centre Phase I safety study that intraarticular injection of a single dose of autologous ASCs to the knee (18 patients, 12 month follow-up) was well-tolerated, had no adverse effects, and resulted in an improvement in pain score and functional outcome.

Description: The AFib-TrainNet consortium will enable promising young scientists to become excellent research leaders of the future, capable of fighting the challenges that Atrial Fibrillation (AF) presents to the European population. AF is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia, occurring in between 1-2% of the general population. More than 6 million Europeans suffer from this arrhythmia and its prevalence is expected to increase by more than two-fold during the next 40 years due to increased life expectancy. Thus, AF is said to assume epidemic proportions. Current options for pharmacological therapy are limited by both low efficacy and side effects, including life‐threatening ventricular arrhythmias and severe extra-cardiac toxicities.

Title: Linking biodiversity, ecosystem functions and services in the Great Serengeti-Mara Ecosystem (GSME) - drivers of change, causalities and sustainable management strategies

URL: http://africanbioservices.eu/

Description: The direct dependence of humans on ecosystem services is by far strongest in developing regions where poverty restricts access to resources. This dependency also makes people in developing countries more sensitive to climate change than their developed counterparts. Increasing human populations deteriorates natural habitat, biodiversity and ecosystems services which spiral into poverty and low human welfare. This calls for innovative solutions that encompass the entire socio-ecological-economic system, as recognized on a global scale in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. However, innovative and practical solutions require downscaling to regional levels for identifying concrete sets of drivers of change. For Africa specifically, the interplay of human population growth, land use change, climate change and human well-being is a major challenge. This project focuses on the Serengeti-Maasai Mara Ecosystem and associated agricultural areas, a region in East Africa that encompasses parts of Kenya and Tanzania. The ecosystem is world-famous for key aspects of its biodiversity, such as the migration of 1.3 million wildebeest. This ‘flagship ecosystem’ role will enhance the international interest in the project. In this project, internationally leading researchers from Norway, the Netherlands, Scotland, Denmark and Germany are teaming up with strong local partners in Tanzania and Kenya. The research will be organised in seven interlinked work packages: 1) assemble and integrate the so far separate Kenyan and Tanzanian relevant data on the region; 2) quantify the connections between human population growth, land use change, climate change and biodiversity change; 3) test how biodiversity change leads to changes in key ecosystem services; 4) quantify the dependence of human livelihoods on these ecosystem services. We will implement innovative ways for communication and dissemination of the results of ‘continuous engagement’ by local stakeholders.

Title: The First Cell Culture Platform that Enables Affordable Cell Therapies at a Large Scale

URL: http://aglaris.co.uk/

Description: Cell therapy has shown promising results for treating and curing a large range of diseases, from cancer to diabetes. The principles of cell therapy are easy to describe: cells (possibly modified) are injected into patients. Cell therapy is now a reality in Europe: in August 2018 the first two treatments for patients with blood cancer were approved; more of them are about to successfully conclude the approval path. What hinders the large-scale uptake of cell therapy is its costs: culturing enough cells of high quality requires specialised personnel and infrastructure, which only a few centres can afford. The market asks for a scalable cell culture platform that can produce large quantities of high quality cells at much lower costs than done nowadays. To address this need, we have developed the Facer – the first fully-autonomous cell culture platform. The Facer can manufacture billions of high-quality cells starting from the small quantity (about 500,000 cells) of a tissue biopsy without the need of human intervention, thanks to a unique patented iterative process. Our product is at TRL 7; its performances, in terms of quality and costs, are superior to any competitor commercially available. We have developed the Facer over the course of 5 years thanks to cash investments of over €3 million. In the Phase 2 project we will finalise the product, perform a validation with external partners, gain the CE marking (our product is not a medical device), and find a distributor and a launching customer. We will initially tackle the European market to then expand globally once that the local regulatory barriers are overcome. In 2024, after 5 years from the first sale, our turnover will surpass the €60 million and our EBITDA will be over €36 million. Our innovation can enable affordable cell therapies at a large scale and change the life of millions of patients who suffer from diseases that have been deemed 'incurable' so far.

Title: Identification of promoters and enhancers specific for inflammatory bowel disease and its subtypes

URL: http://albinsandelin.wixsite.com/sandelinlab/

Description: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) comprises two main types of intestinal disorders: Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). The incidence and prevalence of IBD is highest in Europe and North America (incidence up to 24 per 100,000 person-years). IBD is not well-understood on a molecular level, and is challenging to diagnose correctly. As the disease is chronic, patients typically require life-long treatment, often with very expensive biological drugs, which are not always effective. Thus, there is a need to increase our understanding the disease, and develop better diagnostic methods so that the correct medication can be applied.

Title: Frobenius related invariants and singularities

URL: http://alessiocaminata87.wixsite.com/alca/frobenius/

Description: This is a project in commutative algebra of positive characteristic, which has also many connections with algebraic geometry.The main goal of this project is to study the relations between some classes of rings that arise in prime characteristic, F-singularities, and three specific notions. These are the symmetric signature, a new invariant defined by the Experienced Researcher in his Ph.D. thesis; the generalized Hilbert-Kunz function, a recent generalization of the classical Hilbert-Kunz function studied intensively in prime characteristic algebra; and the FFRT property, a positive characteristic version of the notion of finite representation type, important in representation theory. As a guideline for the future research, eight concrete problems are stated and will be investigated by the Experienced Researcher with the help of the Supervisor. The strategy to complete this task include the acquisition of new knowledge, which will be obtained, among other things, also through the organization of weekly seminars with the collaboration of the host institution. The arguments of this project, F-singularities in particular, are important topics in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry which are developing and growing fast in these years, especially in the USA and in Japan. As a further way to promote the development of these topics also in Europe, the Experienced Researcher and the Supervisor plan to organize a small workshop which will take place in the host institution at the end of the fellowship.

Title: Rhythms In Social Interaction

URL: http://alexandraliviageorgescu.weebly.com/social-rhythm--social-timing.html/

Description: Social interactions are ubiquitous and our globalized society challenges us with increasingly complex social environments. Yet, evolution has equipped humans with a unique capacity to navigate our social worlds, namely the capacity for rhythmic interpersonal coordination. Despite its relevance, social neuroscience studies have largely ignored this phenomenon, due to methodological constraints inherent in the nature of social interaction. In light of new technological advancements, however, the overarching aims of the proposed project are: (1) to implement an interdisciplinary psychological and neuroscientific approach and a novel experimental methodology that combines Virtual Reality (VR) and functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS), in order to (2) understand how social interaction is both expressed in and shaped by rhythmic interpersonal coordination on both a behavioural and a neural level, and to (3) determine whether individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developed individuals differ in their capacity to rhythmically coordinate their motor actions. Thus, the proposed interdisciplinary project combines social psychology research with technical virtual reality innovations and envisages behavioural (synchroneous tapping paradigm), neuroimaging (fNIRS) and clinical (ASD) implementations. It will result in a high-quality scientific programme with long-term potential, by laying the groundwork for the adoption of the concept of “Social Interaction Rhythms” in social neuroscience.

Title: ALK Activation as a target of TRAanslational Science (ALKATRAS): Break free from cancer

URL: http://alkatras.erialcl.net/

Description: This ETN is embedded into an established international research programme; The European Research Initiative on Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK)-related malignancies (ERIA; www.erialcl.net) is an existing and functional network of 13 partners, which will cosset and nurture a cohort of early stage researchers to become confident, competent, independent and well-connected European scientists with excellent career perspectives. ERIA was instigated to coordinate research into ALK-related malignancies to facilitate the development of less-toxic and more efficacious therapies. ALK is increasingly recognised as a prevalent oncogene in a number of human malignancies and therefore poses a prominent clinical problem, which requires coordinated research into its oncogenic mechanisms. ERIA now conducts a collaborative multidisciplinary research programme at the interface of biomedical and bio-mechanistic approaches, which will be an excellent environment to train the next generation of European scientists. The 15 recruited fellows will be incorporated into international academic study groups (all partners of the ERIA network) to perform high calibre research and also will be exposed to environments from other sectors to broaden their experience. Secondments will include technical training within individual laboratories and SMEs (TissueGnostics, Galkem, Cambridge Life Sciences, Sofigen and Varionostics) as well as large Pharma (Roche). Training through research will be complemented with a balanced programme of transferable skills and access to local courses. The training of each fellow will be guided by a personal career development plan and supervised by a PhD committee panel. The primary goal of the network is to train the recruited fellows by participation in an internationally competitive research programme and integrating them into an international network. Thereby providing competence in state-of-the-art research and development at the forefront of translational science.

Title: Prediction in Complex Systems

URL: http://alkistis-elliott-graves.net/

Description: Prediction has traditionally been viewed as a hallmark of successful science by scientists and philosophers alike. In recent years however, interest in prediction has declined, as philosophers have shifted their focus to explicating scientific explanation, while scientists have settled on a standard notion of the term. Unfortunately, this displacement is premature, as it obscures conceptual issues that are becoming increasingly important in scientific practice. Perhaps the most important of these issues is why some sciences (e.g. economics, ecology and climate science) face disproportionate difficulties in making predictions that are sufficiently precise and accurate. This issue has important implications within and outside academia, as it affects our expectations and evaluations of scientific practice.

Title: Advanced ICT Risk Assessment Tool to Increase Climate Resilience, Water-Use Efficiency and Environmental Sustainability of Agricultural Production

URL: http://amaltea.co/es/

Description: 'Water management in Europe and around the world is facing rising global temperatures, higher rainfall variability, population growth and water demand increases, freshwater pollution and other serious challenges. Current Modelling and ICT tools can help farmers to be more efficient regarding water management in agriculture. There are some potential 'smart water' applications available mostly as research or information tools. However, there is still a lack of integrated-site-specific solutions offering an adapted service for the agriculture sector and no available commercialization. Zeta Amaltea, and GeoSlab conform the most complementary consortium with high level skills and background on innovative solutions for Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and planning. They will launch SMARTQUA as the first tool to fully take into account agricultural farmer’s needs to provide effective water and risk management; considering key internal and external data input. SMARTQUA integrates water management and nitrate pollution EU legislation, watershed data and underground aquifers, all in a cheaper offer than competitors. The benefits of this service will provide an accurate decision-making via web (online platform) or mobile application and lead to significant return of saving up to 20-35% of farmer’s operation efficiency and 15% of internal cost (saving water, energy and fertilizer use), whilst avoiding nitrate pollution and providing a higher climate resilience.'

Title: Exploring LIfestyle Transitions: a molecular and physical anthropology approach of ancient Yakut people

URL: http://amis.cnrs.fr/

Description: Adaptation, whereby organisms become fitted to their environment, is a key evolutionary process driving biodiversity. Our understanding of how natural selection impacts genetic diversity has greatly advanced with recent developments in high-throughput DNA sequencing and genome-wide selection scans. However, microbiomes and epigenomes are other systems selection can act upon as they influence our health and phenotype, and thus our fitness. Although microbiomes, epigenomes and genomes can now be reconstructed, no study has evaluated their relative importance in populations exposed to new selective pressures. This is what ELITE aims at achieving by reconstructing the history of the biological changes undergone by the Yakut people of Far Eastern Siberia after their contact with Russians in the 17th century, and the resulting profound lifestyle transition, diet shifts and massive epidemiological outbreaks. By applying a multidisciplinary approach combining the latest advances in physical anthropology, ancient genomics, metagenomics and epigenomics to a unique collection of cultural and biological material from ancient Yakuts, ELITE proposes an innovative experimental approach in evolutionary biology, which could eventually reveal a possible maladaptation to our modern lifestyle, making us more susceptible to diseases. The success of ELITE will be based on the excellent synergy between the experienced researcher and the host institution, as the applicant will benefit from state-of-the-art facilities and expertise to gain advanced training in physical anthropology methods, while applying her genomic skills to a sample set available at no other research institution in the world. By acquiring these new skills in an international context, the experienced researcher will become a fully trained evolutionary anthropo-genomicist at the interface of physical and molecular anthropology, which will place her in ideal conditions to develop as a mature and independent researcher.

Title: Additive Manufacturing Optimization and Simulation Platform for repairing and re-manufacturing of aerospace components

URL: http://amos-project.com/

Description: This research project focuses on several key Direct Energy Deposition (DED) Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes that have great potential to be used as cost-effective and efficient repairing and re-manufacturing processes for aerospace components such as turbine blades and landing gears. This project aims to conduct fundamental research to understand the material integrity through chosen DED AM processes, the accuracy and limitations of these deposition processes, effective defect geometry mapping and generation methods, and automated and hybrid DED and post-deposition machining strategies. This project intends to connect repair and re-manufacturing strategies with design through accurate DED process simulation and novel multi-disciplinary design optimisation (MDO) methods to ultimately reduce the weakness of aerospace component at design stage and prolong their the lifecycles. Both powder-based and wire-based DED systems will be investigated to establish an across-the-board comparative study. The data collected through this comprehensive comparative study will be extremely valuable for the OEMs of this project (i.e. GKN, PWC, and HDI) to understand the pros and cons of these DED systems and will help them to select suitable repair and re-manufacturing strategies. The tests conducted in this research are also extremely beneficial for the SMEs in this project (i.e. Liburdi, AV&R, DPS) to validate their existing repairing systems and techniques.

Title: Evolution of Regulatory Landscapes in Chordates

URL: http://amphiencode.github.io/Data/

Description: Evolution of animal forms largely depends on changes in developmental gene expression patterns. These genes are controlled by a large number of cis-regulatory elements (CREs) distributed in extended genomic regions organized in 3D chromatin structures known as regulatory landscapes (RLs). However, it is currently unknown how these RLs originate and evolve and how changes in RL architecture and associated CREs have impacted the evolution of gene expression and animal body plans. The aim of this proposal is to understand the evolution and origin of vertebrate regulatory genomic architecture. For that, I will generate an extensive epigenetic and topological profiling of the European amphioxus genome, a slow-evolving basal invertebrate chordate. I will study RLs 3D chromatin architecture, enhancers, promoters, open chromatin and nucleosome positioning through amphioxus embryogenesis using 4C-seq, ChIP-seq, ATAC-seq and RNA-seq and compare these datasets with equivalent results from vertebrates. This will allow me to identify the core RLs organizations that we and other vertebrates share and that underlie the novel and conserved features that characterize our body plan. These results will make ground breaking advances in our understanding of how the regulatory architecture of our genome was assembled during evolution, providing new insights on how RLs organization has impacted gene expression and, ultimately, evolution of animal morphology. By the execution of EVOREL innovative techniques and multi-disciplinary approaches to unveil the deep roots of the human regulatory architecture, I will start a promising research program that will secure my future career as an independent group leader.

Description: THALES will embed archaeological data from two excavation projects on the Milesian peninsula, Turkey, into wider discourses on economic production, landscape change and philosophical reflection in the Greek world between the 8th and 6th centuries BC. The archaeological finds from the Temple of Didyma and the nearby necropolis of Panormos (harbour of Didyma) provide vital information about the economy and ritual traditions of this lynchpin region of the Greek and Mediterranean world during a pre-modern era of 'globalisation'. The project will stimulate a transformation in the study of the early classical world with the application of state-of-the-art spatial theories to the landscape around these sites and an innovative combination of quantitative analysis to finds from both excavations, set against the context of contemporary scientific endeavours indexed by the earliest European philosophers writing in Ionia (most famous being Thales of Miletos). The high quality, multidisciplinary research results will contribute significantly to our knowledge of this formative phase of European cultural and intellectual foundations, provide cross-fertilization between disciplines and develop the Experienced Researcher’s long-term vision of modernising classical scholarship.

Title: Geography of Demography: modelling plant population responses to global habitat patterns

URL: http://annamariacsergo.weebly.com/marie-curie-project.html/

Description: Mankind is profoundly altering the environments in which plant and animal populations live. An era of such massive habitat rearrangements requires ecologists to take new approaches to increase our understanding of species distribution and likelihood of persistence worldwide. Improved ecological models of range-wide persistence and response to the simultaneous threats of climate change, habitat destruction and landscape reconfiguration are required to inform management of biodiversity at large scales. GEODEM brings together global datasets of plant distribution and demography to gain insight into how the geographic configuration of habitats affects growth, survival and reproduction of more than 500 plant species worldwide. The project has two main objectives: 1. Geographic Range Pattern Analysis: Using species distribution models and global spatial statistics tools to quantify and compare spatial patterns of suitable environmental conditions across species’ biogeographic ranges. 2. Landscape Demography: Testing how the spatial arrangement of suitable habitat within the geographic space can inform population responses to environmental gradients. The fellow will be supervised by and collaborate with world leaders in spatial ecology in Ireland and other European countries to accomplish her goals. The prestigious Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship will enable her to develop expertise in currently disparate areas of species distribution modelling and demography and place her in a unique position to make significant contributions to the urgent problem of population persistence at large scales during this era of global change. It will enable the fellow to build an independent research program in Europe after gaining research experience in top universities in Canada and Australia.

Title: ANtibioticS and mobile resistance elements in WastEwater Reuse applications: risks and innovative solutions

URL: http://answer-itn.eu/

Description: In response to the increasing problem of water shortage, the reuse of treated urban wastewater is considered the most suitable and reliable alternative for sustainable water management and agricultural development. In spite of the benefits associated with this practice, major concerns currently exist, related to the adverse effects regarding chemical and biological contaminants of emerging concern such as antibiotics and mobile antibiotic resistance elements such as antibiotic resistant bacteria and resistance genes. These are now considered as a serious public health problem by various international organizations and the European Commission, because of their spread in the environment, the food chain, drinking water, etc. To tackle these problems, scientists with an interdisciplinary research/training background are urgently needed. This ETN will train a new generation of ESRs to address the risks associated with such contaminants and wastewater reuse. Innovative chemical, microbiological, toxicological and modelling tools, and novel process engineering will form the scientific and training core of their innovative research projects and training. The project will contribute to understanding the fate and transmission of antibiotics and resistance from wastewater to the environment and humans, through soil, ground/surface water and crops. Relevant ELVs will be determined, essential for the development and implementation of regulatory frameworks. This project directly tackles these aspects, by bringing together a multidisciplinary research team, with the private sector, and policy makers and through communication activities towards stakeholders and the wider public.

Title: Who Should Have a Say? Preferences for Unequal Representation

URL: http://anthonykevins.github.io/

Description: Equal representation is at the core of representative democracy, but are citizens actually in favour of it? There are good reasons to think that citizens may take a variety of stances toward unequal representation (i.e. differential group influence over policy) particularly when it comes to groups that elicit strong emotional reactions (e.g. racialised minorities). Citizens may think that policy-affected groups deserve extra input (due to affectedness), less input (due to bias), or the same amount of input as everyone else. However, it is impossible to say anything meaningful about these attitudes since we know almost nothing about them. This lack of knowledge is a serious shortcoming with real-world implications: these preferences shape politics and, by extension, the functioning of representative democracies. My proposed study is thus relevant not only for recent debates in political science over both the extent and origins of unequal representation, but also for contemporary politics – with its surging populist claims that certain groups have excessive influence over policy.

Title: Characterization of the Human Gallbladder Microbiome

URL: http://apc.ucc.ie/profile-dr-crystal-johnson/

Description: The human gastrointestinal tract harbors a complex community of microorganisms that confer metabolic, immunological and neurological benefits to the host. This assemblage is known as the Gut Microbiome and has received increased attention over the last decade. Scientists have begun to uncover the importance of these bacterial inhabitants and expand investigations to consider how site-specific microbiomes affect host physiology. While more than one million cholecystectomies (gallbladder removal surgeries) are performed throughout Europe each year, the bacterial communities associated with the human gallbladder and its disease states remain unknown. Studies are lacking that characterize the effects of cholecystectomies on the gut microbiome. Without the ability to regulate bile entering the duodenum during food intake, it is expected that gallbladder removal will lead to downstream changes in the intestinal population. Here, the microbial composition of human bile, gallbladder mucosa, and biopsies of surgically removed healthy gallbladders (adherent and non-adherent microbiota) will be investigated using 16S rRNA metagenomics. The profiles will be compared to samples of a second cohort undergoing emergency cholecystectomies, in order to identify possible biomarkers for gallbladder disease. Once the gallbladder microbiome has been elucidated, the impact of its removal on the gut microbiome will be assessed. Using molecular and cultivation based techniques, on stool samples (collected during the recovery period) and analyzed for community composition, metabolomics, bile, fat and energy content. GallBiome will form the basis for establishing relationships between gallbladder microbiota, gut microbiota, and human health with a view to informing future development of diagnostics and therapeutics. Ultimately, characterization of the core gallbladder microbiome has important biological and medical implications with potential to lower the risk and incidence of cholelithiasis.

Description: The biomedical research is the key to reduce disease burden, and yields economic returns both through improved health gains (a healthy workforce) and through commercial exploitation of research outputs. The increasing disease burden has propelled the pharmaceutical industry to bring up new chemical entities into the market at a higher rate, increasing the number of clinical trials and generating huge quantum of clinical data. As a result, clinical trials are becoming increasingly complex, due the use of multiple data capture modalities (paper and pencil or/and Electronic Data Capture systems (EDC)), which require long implementation time, maintenance, upgrades and high economic investment, the need to evaluate more study endpoints and regulatory compliance with Medical Agencies and the growing number of stakeholders participating in the study.

Title: Applications of Personal Robotics for Interaction and Learning

URL: http://april-robots.org/

Description: The aim of personal robotics is to design companion robots that can live and interact with people in a very intuitive way. This requires designing robots that are capable of adapting to the human users, via learning during interaction. This proposal aims at the timely establishment of the first European Industrial Doctorate in “Applications of Personal Robotics for Interaction and Learning” (APRIL) to train future researchers and engineers for the emerging field of personal robotics. APRIL strategically adopts a key entrepreneurial ethos which will equip PhD students with radical cross-sector and interdisciplinary skills and mind-set, by combing research on developmental and social cognitive systems with hands-on experiments on the application of human-robot interaction and assistive systems. APRIL is the result of the strategic synergies of Plymouth University Centre for Robotics and Neural Systems with its international leadership and reputation as UK and European hub in cognitive developmental robotics and human-robot interaction, and with Aldebaran Robotics A-Lab R&D Division which has the world leading market position in the personal robotics industry with the robots NAO and Pepper. This is complemented by six international partners from industry (SONY Corporation, MetraLabs GmbH), academia (Osaka, Humboldt Berlin) and robot users (San Raffaele Hospital Milan and SSSA DomoCasa Pisa). The doctoral training strategy of the EID will implement the latest innovative PhD training approaches of situative and social constructivist learning theories with a unique Coaching Programme for a tailored Individual Skills Development Plan, peer-support and student-centred cohort activities, as well as a strong leadership skills programme for continuous professional development. The two beneficiaries will contribute with a pool of over 12 academic and industry supervisors and will fund 5 additional PhD bursaries to match the EID cohort of the 5 Marie Skłodowska-Curie funded ESR

Title: Breakthrough technology for managing and purchasing translation services guaranteBreakthrough technology for managing and purchasing translation services guaranteeing transparency, savings and quality

URL: http://aqrate.biz/

Description: Aqrate is the SaaS changing the way companies handle and purchase translation services. It is a web platform designed to support companies and organisations who translate high volumes of documentation. Translations might seem like a simple process to handle, but for companies around Europe who require thousands of words translated per week, the reality is much more complex and costly. There are thousands of companies spending over €50,000 per year and many spend over €100,000. The main issue for translation buyers today is that cost estimates are provided by language service providers (LSPs) themselves, and buyers are given little transparency on the process. This creates a clear conflict of interest because companies producing large volumes of text for translation tend to entrust their content to one LSP with no visibility or feedback on word counts and translation quality. Purchasing translation services on the market is therefore like putting fuel in your car without knowing how much fuel is in the tank or how much you are adding. Aqrate provides companies with a meter to overcome this market asymmetry and level the playing field. Our approach is completely unique in the industry and was created to give companies control of their translations and allows them to use multiple vendors. Our software separates content analysis from translation to reduce costs and improve the quality of the entire process. Our market tests show that we can deliver companies 30% savings on their yearly translation costs. We have a clear value proposition that resonates in the market, and we believe that within three years of market launch we will be generating €6 million per year. We will use Phase 1 to conduct valuable market validation and targeting studies while also completing our due diligence process around remaining software development areas. Our estimated total funding required: to reach TRL 9 is €2.2 M which we plan to fund via private financing and a Phase 2 project.

Title: Novel closed-cage system for high-value marine aquaculture

URL: http://aquafarm.no/

Description: The global demand for seafood is in a period of exceptional growth, making up 16% of all consumed animal protein, or 119m tonnes annually, expected to increase to 152m tonnes by 2030. Wild stocks, are near or beyond their sustainable limit, resulting in an annual production shortfall of ca. 30m tonnes by 2030. Farmed seafood provides a clear, viable alternative and consumer demand can thus drive a striking growth in aquaculture, if current technological and regulatory barriers can be

Title: Decontamination by glycosylation based wipes

URL: http://aquilabioscience.com/

Description: The increasing cross-border and cross-continental movement of people, goods and food, together with the global terrorism threat, have enormous potential to affect the emergence and spread of infectious diseases, including those caused by biothreat agents. Filling the need and gap in the marker for highly-portable, broadly-specific decontamination methods, Aquila BioScience has developed a novel Glyco-DeCon system. At the development stage the unique combination of sugars capturing biothreat agents was identified by using a novel microarray technology. In the Glyco-DeCon wipe, the sugars are chemically attached to the surface of a pre-treated, self-contained cellulose-based material. This approach targets natural binding sites of the biothreat agents and offers a non-toxic alternative to the harsh chemical decontamination methods. The Glyco-DeCon wipe is the safest method for biological decontamination described so far and can be used on human skin as well as the delicate surfaces of the mucosal epithelia or the human eye. Moreover, the product uses natural compounds like cotton and purified proteins reducing the environmental burden of toxic chemical approaches. The Glyco-DeCon kit is intended to become part of all first responder kits.

Title: Algebraic Representations in Computer-Aided Design for complEx Shapes

URL: http://arcades-network.eu/

Description: ARCADES aims at disrupting the traditional paradigm in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) by exploiting cutting-edge research in mathematics and algorithm design. Geometry is now a critical tool in a large number of key applications; somewhat surprisingly, however, several approaches of the CAD industry are outdated, and 3D geometry processing is becoming increasingly the weak link. This is alarming in sectors where CAD faces new challenges arising from fast point acquisition, big data, and mobile computing, but also in robotics, simulation, animation, fabrication and manufacturing where CAD strives to address crucial societal and market needs. The challenge taken up by ARCADES is to invert the trend of CAD industry lagging behind mathematical breakthroughs and to build the next generation of CAD software based on strong foundations from algebraic geometry, differential geometry, scientific computing, and algorithm design. Our game-changing methods lead to real-time modelers for architectural geometry and visualisation, to isogeometric and design-through-analysis software for shape optimisation, and marine design & hydrodynamics, and to tools for motion design, robot kinematics, path planning, and control of machining tools. One of the Network SMEs estimates that the innovative impact of ARCADES may enable them to get ahead of competition for up to 2 years, thus benefiting about 40% of their customers. The participants span a multidisciplinary and multisectoral spectrum for realising our vision, all being international leaders at various stages of the pipeline. They form an outstanding ecosystem for training the next generation of applied mathematicians, computer scientists and engineers for achieving our scientific breakthroughs, and who are equipped with a double career advantage: excellent research training, and exposure to industrial research environments through a nexus of secondments among Universities, Research and Innovation Centers, and industrial teams.
